Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam
After completing all the steps of installation, I cannot get my new Logitech QuickCam Express's microphone to work. With the Audio Tuning Wizard, I can get to the step called "Adjust Microphone Volume", but then, when I test the volume with my voice, no sound is sent into the microphone, and I get the message called "Microphone Warning" stating that "little or no sound was detected from your microphone" etc. I bought two of these webcams, and neither will work. I'm pretty sure this problem is occuring because when the Audio Tuning Wizard has a box with a dropdown asking for the correct microphone, it only comes up with SoundMAX Digital Audio, which is the audio system in my laptop (and my laptop does not have a built in microphone), not the Logitech QuickCam Express one. So either how can I add a microphone to my audio settings, or how can I get the microphone to work? I have exactly same problem with Quickcam E1000. But 'best solution' below the reported problems simply just logs another problem instead of providing a solution! Help!!
SOURCE: QuickCam mic doesn't work
I had this problem, and this seems to have worked for me:
1) Uninstall Logitech camera program and drivers from "Programs and Features" in the control panel.
2) Reboot computer
3) Go to http://www.logitech.com click on support, download the latest drivers installation for your device
4) Install this version (not the one that came on your CD!)
5) After the driver installs and Logitech thinks it's done, there was a Windows alert wanting to install the drivers. Important - tell it to locate and install them.
6) Proceed with sound test
This worked for me.. I was finally able to see my camera as a system microphone. The Logitech instructions don't mention anything about step 5, but it never worked properly for me until I did that.
